The HSD Research Support Centre—the only faculty-based research support service of its kind at UVic—will tell you that every funded study involves a complex series of steps to manage the process, from application to fund administration to reporting back to funding agencies. Given the community-based focus of much of HSD’s research, many initiatives involve more than one researcher, faculty, school, research centre, or community partner.
